LOS ANGELES, CALIF. - As the fall winds down and players prep for the upcoming Spring, we have updated and expanded the 2023 CA Rankings to 400 prospects. As players begin to shift their focus to their respective high school teams, the summer and fall seasons have shone a light on this class which is now beginning to come into focus from a draft standpoint. With so many potential draft prospects in the state of California the rankings help with spring follow lists as we march towards the 2023 MLB Draft next July. 

As always, the evaluation process is a fluid and ongoing process with multiple viewings in order to get the best feel for players abilities. It’s important to note that as players continue their development some show marked improvement at a much more rapid pace. That doesn’t indicate that other players got worse or went backwards, it’s just how player development works.  As the year unfolds, players make improvements and new prospects pop up on the radar expanding the PBR rankings universe.  In addition to the evaluations of players, our scouts, both those in California and nationally, have also had multiple discussions with each other to review our individual lists and then make adjustments based on what we've each seen. 

Look forward to more content covering the 2023 updated rankings and another update heading into the Spring season!
